In brief: Not likely
As long as we have skin pores, oil glands, bacteria and hormones we are not likely to avoid acne to some degree at some point in our lives.

In brief: Several Ways
Avoid stress and eating high sugar foods and carbohydrates which can increase inflammation and acne.
There are several over-the-counter acne medications that contain benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, both of which help to dry up acne lesions. If you have sensitive skin, be mindful that these products can be irritating if you have lots of blackheads, ultrasonic skincare is good.
